If the end of another year has you thinking about all the resolutions you didn’t keep, consider this: You made a real, tangible, measurable difference to nature.

How? Your support created some truly awe-inspiring conservation outcomes in 2013. Read on for some of our favorites.

Cleaner, Healthier Rivers
Saving Long Island Sound
  • You helped six new coastal communities begin evaluating risks and planning natural defenses to coastal storms and sea-level rise.
  • You funded data collection for the first comprehensive assessment to pinpoint the Sound’s most crucial habitats for protection and restoration.
  • You built a new native plant border at Aspetuck Park to filter runoff and improve water quality in this once-popular local swimming hole.
  • You supported new legislation that ensures climate change and the rate of sea-level rise are considered when coastal communities plan new development and sewage treatment upgrades.
Caring for Critical Lands
Celebrating People
  • You gave four New York City students the summer of a lifetime as Conservancy Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) paid interns. The young women worked with our staff to maintain trails, remove invasives and restore an arboretum.
  • You helped us reach 2,500 people through a pre-concert discussion panel at the Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of “LIFE: A Journey Through Time.”
  • Your support carried Team Nature Conservancy to victory in New Haven’s annual Rock to Rock Earth Day Ride, raising more than $19,000 for conservation.
Going Global
  • You brought staff from Brazil to Connecticut to learn more about forest restoration and watershed protection.
  • You invested in groundbreaking indigenous community conservation programs in Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia.
  • You helped protect Australia’s Great Western Woodlands by establishing community-based conservation that includes indigenous peoples, government and miners.
